Am I becoming a Halloweenie?

Over the past few years my thoughts on Halloween have been changing some.   When I was a kid I was a fan of the Halloween candy but somewhere along the line I just didn’t enjoy Halloween.   I was a Halloween Scrooge   BOO HUMBUG !

But now I kind of enjoy Halloween time.  Why?  Ghoul 103.9   Several years ago we at KOOL thought it would be fun to supply the soundtrack for Halloween.   At 3 pm the transformation begins and KOOL becomes Ghoul with 6  hours of music, comedy and sounds about Halloween  .  As I started to put the show together I started to see the fun side of Halloween.   The costumes are amazing especially the kids when they come by trick or treating.

Here is a list of Halloween movies you might consider.  1st Scary movies.   I am not a fan of slasher movies and scary movies so I think I have only seen one on this list from Society19.com

Movies they recommend.  A quite place… Truth or dare…  Before I wake…. The 1st purge …Predator.

Now I have seen the original Predator with Arnold and Jesse the Body Ventura. I really liked it.  (I ain’t got time to bleed)

But there are also a lot of movies that are fun and scary , I call them Halloween lite.  Some movies you might consider.   Fright night…. The Adams family… The monster squad… Shaun of the dead… this movie has a cult following and I tried to watch it, notice the word tried…. Ghostbusters…. Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein and the one I have to watch every year is Young Frankenstein.   I LOVE THIS MOVIE!

One other movie that you might consider is not really a scary or a funny Halloween movie but it is a Bio movie called ED WOOD.   Johnny Deep as a real life movie writer and director who was more than a little out there.  He was the king of the old B movies and directed what a lot of movie critics say is the ‘Worst movie ever made” Plan 9 from outer space.   As bad as Plan 9 was Ed Wood was the opposite.   This is one quirky movie that to me is a must see.   I would probably put it on a personal Top 10 list.

So as we get closer and closer to Halloween maybe I will try a few scary movies… Nah, but I will watch the fun ones.   Maybe I will become more of a Halloweenie
